Deuteronomy 20:17; Exodus 22:20; Leviticus 27:29; Numbers 21:2-3

17 but vyou shall devote them to complete destruction,1 the Hittites and the Amorites, the Canaanites and the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites, as the Lord your God has commanded,


20 nWhoever sacrifices to any god, other than the Lord alone, shall be devoted to destruction.1


29 hNo one devoted, who is to be devoted for destruction1 from mankind, shall be ransomed; he shall surely be put to death.


yAnd Israel vowed a vow to the Lord and said, If you will indeed give this people into my hand, then I will devote their cities to destruction.1 And the Lord heeded the voice of Israel and gave over the Canaanites, and they devoted them and their cities to destruction. So the name of the place was called zHormah.2
